Payments

This year we are accepting payments for camps by check and credit card! So please take some time to read through the points below:

  • All camp weeks will be subject to a $25 non-refundable deposit upon registration. The deposit is not in addition to the camp fees, but comes out of the camp week fees in the event of a cancellation.
  • The registration forms will outline the total camp fees for all the camp weeks you are registering for as well as outline how much of the total camp fees is the non-refundable deposit. 

Paying By Cheque

When paying by check, the registration form will outline the total camp fees for all camp weeks, as well as the non-refundable deposit. 
In order to confirm your child(ren)'s spot(s) BGCCA must receive the following within 7 days of registration:

  • a check for the deposit ($25 per camp) as outlined on the registration form at the time of registration;

    AND
      
  • one post-dated check: for the total balance of the July + August camp fees (the total fees outlined on the registration form, minus the deposit) post-dated for June 15, 2017
    OR
  • two post-dated checks: one for the balance of the July camps (dated June 15) and one for the balance of the August camps (dated July 15) [if you are unsure how to calculate these balances, please speak with the OSC Program Coordinator who will be happy to assist you!]
